The Occupational Therapists identified an activity pack that was being used in The Royal Hospital, Donnybrook to support patients who were isolated as in-patients, and decided to adapt this idea (with permission), to develop a home-based activity pack. With that, Project Postbox was born.
Uptake of the flu jab among staff rose by 24.5% to 58.3% for the 2019-2020 flu season. TJ White, Director of Nursing at the hospital, said the peer vaccinators among the staff were key to the success of the campaign. The hospital used the Staff Wellness Day to promote the benefits of the vaccine and address any concerns that people had surrounding the flu jab. They regularly communicate with the staff with updates about the campaign.
